‘Doctor Who’ Star Peter Capaldi Reveals Meaning Behind Twelfth Doctor’s New Ring

0

Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has revealed the gold ring the Twelfth Doctor wears is not just for show – it’s full of symbolism and history.

The star came up with the idea of reintroducing jewelry to the Time Lord while visiting the set of Doctor Who origins movie An Adventure in Space and Time, where he met the original sci-fi icon William Hartnell’s granddaughter.

She brought along a box full of her grandfather’s Who trinkets and the ring he wore on the show caught Capaldi’s eye.

He tells TV Guide magazine, “She opened this little box of props from the original series. She showed me this fabulous ring. Later, I had a band made with a stone in it (like Hartnell’s). The stone was sent to me by a jeweler whose son wrote this little story that went with it, which was amazingly affecting.

“He said the stone represented and reminded the Doctor of all the the people he’s lost in his long life. But it wasn’t a sad thing. It was to remember how joyful times could be.”
